Very recognizable work, note the sky, by Willem Roelofs, painter, etcher and watercolourist.
Born in Amsterdam on 10 March 1822 and died in Berchem on 12 May 1897.
He studied at the Hague Academy, and was later also taught by Hendrikus van de Sande Bakhuyzen. He mostly made rural scenes often decorated with cows and other livestock or poultry and ducks.
He often wrote the location on his works in the bottom left or right corners and also signed it with his very recognizable signature.
As mentioned, this work was made around Woerden. It depicts a barn and farm house with beautiful trees and rustication and in the foreground the sunlight is nicely distributed across the grassland with flowers. The painting comes with the original frame and has recently been cleaned and equipped with a matte satin varnish.
Due to the vulnerability of the frame, pick up is preferred. Shipping is possible in consultation after purchase.
